GO Projects — New Explorations Mentoring Service for disabled people

Mentoring is the support given by another person to help you to explore your opportunities.

New Explorations is a volunteer led mentoring service, where Mentees are able to explore their opportunities for positive change.

We take a person centred approach and respect that 'one size does not fit all'. We will work together with what you bring. By building and maintaining a supportive mentoring relationship, based around listening and shared understanding, we believe that you can make choices and take control in your life.

But know that you want to change!

But know that you need support!

Contact us and discover what New Explorations Mentoring can do for you by becoming a Mentee.

Support network

People need support networks. You may not use that phrase or even think of your family, friends and colleagues in those terms but that is what they are – your support network.

For those with disabilities and mental health issues the support network is even more important but often more difficult to establish. But with support much more can be achieved.

Small steps

Being a Mentee can help you to develop skills, confidence and, through discussion, make life's stresses take on a different, less threatening shape. With good mentoring it is possible to explore new opportunities which may have seemed impossible in the past for those with a disability.

Opportunities for change

New Explorations Mentoring Service assists Mentees to be ambitious, to see the opportunities for personal development and, for many, to achieve a job at the end of the journey.

New Explorations Mentoring Service is a one-to-one mentoring service for adults with disabilities in Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen and Moray.
